Isabel Arends investigates new technologies that make chemical processes much greener. For example, she researched the basic components of a process that uses enzymes and oxygen (air) to produce aromatics with high precision without involving any toxic and polluting solvents. Arends was one of the first researchers to combine chemical and biocatalytic processes. She also has a passion for teaching and set up a successful online programme in industrial biotechnology.
